“Cinnamon Buns!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

They have the best cinnamon buns! I look forward to be annual Andrew's cinnamon bun all year. It is worth the indulgence. We enjoy this place for breakfast, and you can't beat their omelets or pancakes either. Just a forewarning the pancakes are huge! This year was especially nice because our waitress was great! We never waited for a coffee refill once. For those looking for a view, Harborside has a pretty decent one!

“Chowder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Great view from the back deck. Parking is a bit of a pain in the area as it is a very busy place. The chowder was really tasty and definitely worth the trip.

“Best breakfast in the harbor!”

The cinnamon buns are a must and the service is impeccable. I have been here for both breakfast and dinner and have always been extremely satisfied with the food and service. One of the best places to eat in Boothbay!

“pretty good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

You can get a better deal on twin lobsters elsewhere. I did order this but the only thing that came w/it was an ear of corn which I didn't want. Would have like cole slaw & the price was on the higher end for what you get.
